covered charred bodies of victims of the (Ungraceful massacre- of 
July 2. The militia H in full control and a pall of shame permeates 
the disgraced Illinois city. The letter citizens have awakened to the 
true- realization of the horror of the terrible crimen perpetrated, al-

Although hundred;! of rclugeos have 
sorrowfully retraced their steps across 
the mighty Father of Waters to ' again 
til ,i up their honest Inborn, many re- 
main in St. Louis in pitiful conditions. 
Home are erippled t o( lift, wae are 
suffering the painful effecte of unjust 
treatment, some are clotheslesn, all s re 
nd. Mothers with 1 Litis ehildren Jin- 

Rr without a protesting husband and

wives siiccumtoel to 'the bloody lust, 
children who have bene nrphnand by 
the hand of evil fata. 

So many ease* of »U*ry eOBstantiy 
appear before the tyM of the noble 
cltiieoa of thi. Louis who an working 
unceasingly to help the annoy, that it

The entire country has joined in de- 
manding a thorough investigation of 
the causes (iiid effects nf the rjot. The 
grand jury baa been in session daring 
the past week and to date, three in- 
dict meats have been returned. It is 
, stated ,' however, that sufficiout evidence 
has" been secured. to indict many r. the™, 
wlio participated in the riot, bat their 
Danes have not been made public 
The Coroner 'a inquests have been held 
behind linked doors, against the pro- 
tests of the leading tit liens and it is 
the ^oaccnsuj of opinion that' a thor- 
ough and unbiased investigation can 
not bo bad unless the United States 
.Government takes a hand. This ij' it- 
tributed to the rotten political condi- 
tions in the city, which is the real 
cause of the laaity of taw and order;

if the ahureh in tn be'tho apiritunl

yiiu should ask forn donation, or credit 
for the .church, some of the businesi 
men -of' the town will tell yon tkat

My dear Christian friend*,. this should 
not be true of the 'church, but It is. 
Let us be bright and shining light*

THE MOB VS. THE LAW 

There, are I'iCo. very vital questions confronting the American 
people iti this, country today, which stuml'd. demand the attention of 
the host thinking people, to the end thut they should rise in their 
rij-htenua indignation mid call a HALT. The moli spirit breeds con- 
tempt for law niiil order. Laxity in enforcing the law always fcii- 
roarojtea the violator. 

Human nature reliela aKainst law nnri order, fhi account of the 
fact that man in man is so unjust, we have finim] it aecessary to fill 
i\r Statutory books I" overflowing wjlh legislation railed taw. Law 
is divine in itw nature", in that it is no respecter of persons. It is - 
strong inui powerful when i! ia enforced, but weak am! contemptible 
when fteateeted, ^ 

The niuli- wiiii'he.s tin- law, anil is always ready to attack it 
whenever ami wherever, it shows weakness. Those vmo form mobs 
have seen for a hulf century thai the law is weak s.u fnr as N'egroes* 
riffhls ore concerned. They hove seen that Ihe constable, the sheriff, 
the police, the judge- ami trn> jtiry have all fallen before the monster 
1*REJITJ1CE, when called uponto enforce the law, where both races 
ure. involved Prejudice always u.verha!aiiees justice iir favor of the 
mob. 

During the recent outbreak of . mob violence in East St. Louis, 
the officers of the law- and the cify officials guvc license to the rioters 
-by "their partiality in favor of the jvhjtrs. "While the mob was form- 
ing, all Negroes seen iipou the streets were searched for arms, while 
the white men were alloweJJ tii pass "unnoticed. Negro homes were 
entered, searched, ransacked and looted by officers on pretense that 
amis might be found therein. AH this 'was done hefore those who 
, make-up the moh. What more assurance should anjyme need J The 
results were certain.. Mob triumphs.. Law bangs its head in sham*, 



NEGROES SHOULD RETURN 

The recent race riot at East St. Leiys has occasioned iniii-hdis-. 
■Mission. .no doubt, throughout this country a/ to whether' the Ne- 
groes who fled from the fnry of the mob shi/old return to. East St. 
I.nnis since law.iind order have been restored. 

Of course, there is n division anions: the Negroes themselves. 
This calls for careful and logical reasoning on the part of all who 
are in any way interested. -The .voluntary acts af those who have 
left will affect the whole race 'for generations to come. It will .de- 
termine whether we, (is a race", will voluntarily surrender oifr rights 
as American citizens to the cries and whims of the Jabor unions 'or 
any other set. of men. Conditions mavjsn develop that any class of 
■'itixens may lie temporarily driven from their homes, perhaps, by 
mob violence or other causes, biit the brava and true will return 'to. 
their homes. If we leave permanently, tha mobs will have accoDi- 
pliahed their purpose. The employers, the state and city officials have 
truurflnfeed protection, and nawc_ vowed to make East 'St. Louis a 
safe place for all law-abiding peoplf.. The Ne-gTocs should return 
at one'e. , c 



THEODORE ROOSEVELT • 

True to himself, tnif to hift Sod and true to his ideals .'of Amer-' 
icanprinciplcs. Colonel Theodore Roosevelt could" not face the' guests 
of the nation with a two-faced add ran, at Carnegie nail', in New 
York, recently. "We dare say -thut not' another man in this great 
country would have had the eoiirajre, forethought, aitd initiativ?~to 
have said a word about the "beam in'bur eye" white »e were trying 
to pull- the "mote" out of/ the- Russians' eye 1 under like cireum- 
•stances. He did .not stop to coiia some new phrase or to sugar-coat 
the eyils of this nation ; he simply pulled the cover off in the follow- 
in slanguage: . ( - 

•'Before. we do justice to oiliera it behooves us to do justice 
within our borders. I refer to the rffie riots ha East St. Louis for 
which, as far as we can ..see, .there was, ho provocation and whieh re- 
suhed.in such appalling brutality" asto leave a stain on the Amer. 
lean name. It. is our duty to demand that the governmental author-, 
fciea ■hall use with ruthlesa severity* every power at their command 
to punish. those guilty of murder, whether. committed by whites 
against blacks or whether by blaeka sgainrt whites. It is our duty 
to insist first of all -on the restoration of order and the reign of Jaw 
Upon the fpundsUon of law ajid onKr we must build the structure 
of jaatioa.". 

Tne-^loML ia to be congraittated by aU fair-minded peopie. 
We.nMd a few more strong and epuragsMus men who will tell the. 
truth and speak for right and jui lini

Trrf— 1 lrm W. ■ Ckaa H. WaUtiaa, 



Oocasioiu an»e. when words of ciear-heatleti s far-o-xing guidance - 
from mem of knowledge and judgment would he h*i"pinl" ;M ajj] of as, ' We 
rightfully look for this from prominent men who ought -always to be pub- 
licists. B nt in oof incoosidentie haste we uasist on immediate dhCaawst- 
tlone of opinion from those, whom, we are soisiutoi-ied ta follow. Not only 
rAbst their views be given iastaatly, but they moat alio be sharp and 
decided. .*.'■' 

Thus those who should be the leaders of public thought too frequently 
hecoraf) panderers to public, impatience. They u* too often cofiipetitors 
for publicity. The; strive to. get on the front page of the flirt edition 
of the newspapers. To do this, speeches and interriewe es^en on the - 
gravest and mc«t complicated questions are prepared with frantic precipi- 
tancy and in lurid kngnsge. That necesesry delay xecjuired by gathering 
and mutering data and .carefully working out the problem which it pre- 
tents ' would - make out of date the publication b* toe conclusion* tjixit 
formed ; while cool and balanced language would lack that sting and' 
eccentricity at present so attracUre'to our taste. We require that the 
outgivings of our public men shsll be full of "pep" and "punch ;"' other- 
wise they are rejected by a public palate which has become accostomed 
to high seasoning. ' ■ . •■ , . ■ m 

' Thus, oar public discussion is peculiarly heated, spasmodic and 
charged with error. Instead of a full statement of facts, they are often 
given only in part and with prejudiced ardor.- Extravagant catchwords 
more* and more frequently take the place of careful reasoning; andiexplo- . 
sive epithet rather 'than deals' argument is made the weapon «f serious 
controversy. So it is that public, opinion, lashed by inconstant winds. 
whirls in. eddies, now about thia point' and now" about that, instead of 
Sowing in fnll and constant currant. ' r 

The papers of the itatesinen of our formative period, and indeed of 
the more powerful ones down to recent times, when' com pared with many 
produced today, dieclose tha change in the- manner of thinking cot public 
men and their expression of it Those of recent years appear to be imma- 
ture, hastily prepared and; overemphasized when read in parallel with, 
those of .our early and middle history. 

Yet those calmer tod riinpler papers dealt with problems u~ weighty. 
as any that ever confronts the mind of man, snd were written at times ' 
when popular passions raged ungovernably. The others discussed ques- 
tions no greater snd appeared at times no more perilous. They Indicated 
that we have indeed acquired the harmless. "punch" of extravagance, but 
hare lost the deadly "pouch" of moderation. In gaining velocity we 
seem to hate impaired our sen as of direction. ■* 



Many Persons Fail Because They 
Lack Traits of the Bulldog 



BrrWF. W.etssawsssi 



The bulldog ia "not much for beauty," but he knows how to shut hi* 
jaw. . He does* not have many requests fov'h^^iwitiW^ biit i^. knows the ■ 
art of hanging, on. Tliew are plenty of people in thia world who ought 
to go to school to thia isacbar. , 

Many a man' fsila, not from lack of opportunity, or from lack of L 
ability, but from lack of ocronaja and persistence. Many people begin

TEXT—Rspsiit ye therefor*, end turn 
■Ckla, that your tin* nu be blotted out, 
thai aa there may . roma aaa.anna of >r- 
fraahln*- from the presence of the tdsrd: 
and that ht mar sand the Christ- who 
hath been appointed for y*u. *»en hen*; 
whom the heavan mutt receive until the 
itmee of Mimration of all things, whereof 
Ood spake by tha mouth of bla holy 
prochel* ia.4.t hava beta from of old.— 
Acts 1:1*. a. 

litre are -the four great steps in the 
path of Divine Knee. 

<1> Th* Pint 
la Repentance, 
"repent ye, there- 
for*." Repentance 
means a chnntic 
of mind. ' These 
Jews to whom 
Peter was speak* 
lug hnd "denied 
the Iloiy Odb and 
the Jost," at nl 
"killed the Prince 
of life." For Shriii 
ti> rep*"* wan W 
change their mlf)d 
about him, fieri to 
came to look up- 




a him a 



he « 



namely their 
Meftaiah and the Savior of men. The 
change this would produce, In their 
lives, and In their attitude towards him. 
la very obvious. 

Repentance means the sane In your 
(U« or mine. It means believing on 
Jesus Christ as he Is, presented In the 
Bible, and conforming our lives there- 
to. 

(2) Tha Second 8 Up la Remission 
•f Stae, "that your *tn* tow 0* blotted 
out." (he bIds even of these Murderers 
of his Son whom he had raised from 
the dead, If now they would believe 
en und accept him ss such. And this 
eame promise holds good for us, no. 
matter what our guilt is. "Though 
your sins be as scarlet the; stall be 
as white a I snew, though they be red 
like crimson, they shell be bb ivool." 
"Blotted "out" -la the t is n stint on of a 
Greek word which... tripsins so much! 
Xeoopbou and Demosthenes use It in 
tbe sense of "expunging'" a - thing. 
Aeschylus employs It In the sense of 
"ertl aguish," Herodotus to "placer 
over'! an object, and ethers to wipe 

■ out as with a sponge or a cloth. * Judi- 
cially e<inald«retl in the sight of God, 
there Is no more tree* of your. Una 
the moment they are covered by the 
blood of Christ, i And that Is the mo- 
ment when In repentance yon receive 
blm as your Savior by faith. That Is 
what- Peter mean* In bis arst epistle. 
where he speaks of the Abundant 
mercy** of Qo6V . ' — " 

(3) The TMrjhakep Is ftefrMhln* 
that so there may .come seasons of 
refreshing from the presence- of the 
Lord." It nggeeta agricuitnre. There 
la Drst the plowing up of the ground 
and sowing of the seed, that. Is re- 
penbULce. Then there Es germination 

.'and. the coming up of the blade, then 
the ear, then the lull corn in the' ear: 
that Is the blotting out el nln, and thfc. 
entrance of the tinner upon a ndw 
life: But following this there must 
be the nfreshlBi showers of rain to 
keep every thing green, and to .bring 
the life to Its complete und beautiful 
fruition. 

* And ao In the spiritual life, Ood who 
begins the good work In in continues 
It After we ure saved and forgive*, 
be does not leave ub to ourselves, but 
provtden for our growth In grace and 
In his knowledge. Times of refresh - 
Ing. are sent from his. presence. On 
the day of Pentecost such a 'refresh- 
ing came when the disciples we're 
filled with tbe Holy Spirit - Later on 
they were fllled again. The same eplr. 
It came on them of Samaria, npon Co-r- 
nellns and his household, and npon 
the young ChrlnttnnR ay Epheans. The 
history of true revlvald la nil Ute v c«n- 
taries has been a fulfillment- of this 
promise. They have been times of re- 
freshing to men's souls. Eves? sin- 
cere Christian if lung experience can 
took back over the' years and* count 
the times when God ha* seemed to 
open, the windows of heaven to him 
and) poured out blesslnga on his souL 
It Is for such a time s if refreshing .tee

The reformation under Heeeklah Is 
one'of the bright and attractive spot* 
In the latter history of the .kingdom bf 
Israel. It wes a moat tAoratigh refor- 
inatlon and Ood set his seal upon It 
Id- many wonderful wnys. Tenchent 
ought (o give their elaasea m rompre- 
lieuphe view Of nil thnt Heseklah did, 
as recorded In II Chron.,. chapters 
23>52.. 

I. Mexsklah'a Proclamation. 
1-6). The proper Introduction to this 
lesson wool d- be to return to ch&pter 
twenty-nine and note jlie restoration 
of the worship of Jehovah. ISinv It 
began In one man's, heart, Heieklnli; 
how he called the people to be clean 
(a) :'!.'), then cnKe'l upon p tfennsjng 
of the house of God nod Its. real oral Inn 
(w. 18. IB).. How ho railed them >i 
.renewed Boeriflee find worship' (ve. 
20. 21). The restoration Vf the sin- 
offering and of tbe burDt-ofterlDg. and 
the rrnult of these offerings In the Le- 
Yttiriii music and In the worship of the 
^rent cetiKregntlon (2B. 25J. Tbe se- 
quel of song alu-ays follows and hc- 
eompHTileE n true revival of religion. 
Hnvlng _, co nscc ruled thpmnelves unto 
the Lord, Ueieklah sende out this 
proclamation. The consecratLoo of the 
people, hh referred In chnpter 20, was 
very complete.. (See vv. 31-3ft) Heie- 
hlnh wn« a mnn of deep discernment 
its well ns of trur piety. He saw the 
inen'nlng of the sncrlnce of redemption 
and put tbe passover forward ns the 
very hPart-center of the worship of 
Jehovah. (Sepvv.j, i>.i Wbeever un- 
derstands the passover, nnderstandii 
God's woy of solvation.- (See Exodus 
12:13-23; I Cor. 3:7.8; Rom. 3:25. 26; 
John 1:29.) Hesekiah did not ennflne 
his cull to ihn-,' of Israel alone, but 
extended' It beyond its bonier* to those 
of Ephrnlm, thus manifesting the true 
miiMiiiiiirj- spirit. Hexeklah hid am- 
ple Scriptural warrant keeping this 
paissover «ut of Its regular order' ( vv. 
9-13),. God U-not a God of time ot 
place- Wherever obedience la possible, 
whether It be n matter of tlmw'or not. 
God approves- Tlew\\a.h. f however, 
did tint act upon -bis owu inll lntlvi», 
h^r,«nnjrht-C , onns*l. (See'v. 2.) . -Bur" 
man whif Is the most clearly led of 
God is the man who ts most eitger and 
■mtiona tn know bow God la leadlnc 
' other men and'will listen most patient- 
ly to their counsel. The fact that the 
people had- n*t "gathered themselves 
together at Jerusalem" for a long 
time, might have warranted a fur- 
ther delny. Sot Bo wjtb 'this enthusi- 
astic young king. He. was not bound 
by pTecedebt, bat wia anxious to 
please God. 

' II. Hexelclah** t^thartaUon (vr. T- 
13). Heeeklah hegon his exhortation 
by ettWIng attentlflii to the trenpaMes 
Of tlyfrlr f»t here (V. .7). At the same 
time he remlnda them that If God gnve 
them over to desolation because tbey 
tbemseEves were itlff-necked (T. S) 
and yielded sot themselvea unto the 
Xrrd to enter his sanctuary, which be 
had sanctllled unto them, they would 
come under the fierceness of God's 
-wrath, for they had turned -from the 
Lord ; 1h3y had "trespassed against the 
Lord God of their father*." Because 
of that trespass God had ."given them 
tip to desolation.** Literally be had 
made Jhem "jin astonishment." This 
astonishment and desolation was well 

known, "us ye see" (V. T), . Anvim 

with eyes open can nee' today the deso- 
lation of Individuals, ot families, com- 
munities end nations who trespass 
against God. Tor a generation we 
have had the de»<fof CbrUt and the 
Inspiration, of -hi a Word.-coJIed Into 
qnestlnEt nnl that the individual man 
is ;hf dlcia-rnr of his own conscience 
and Ufe, and It Is beeanse men have 
departed from their faithful allegiance 
to J«u» CliTlst and fall to obey hi* 
co in in mi i.l. that we see the strife, and 
desolation of today. 

.The first departure yra'ttsed' people In 
be "stiff-necked*' and Jehovah: Is cnll- 
ing them to repentance, but they would 
not bear Osee Hi. 36;13; ,££. ffifl; 
''torn, 10:21}. In place of this "Miff- 
neeanem" trf their hearts' Hetekish 
entreatat them - to turn again to the 
Lord and not In -be stiff-necked as. were 
their fathers !(v. 8), thnt I* they will 
turn- strain unto the Lord (v. ft) tbey 
will And compassion so thnt they shall 
again enter hi* grnctons antl merciful 
dealings. Having yielded themselves 
they were to enter Into rommnnlnn 
with him and "enter-lnto his Mnetu- 
ary, which b* h?d sanctilled forever/* 

They were also to serve" him. Most 
blessed results were to follow for them 
and for their brethren and their ehtl-. 
dren. bnt all of tbls bright prtwpVet U-

baoeid.upon the fact that Jehovah **U 
gradioiw and merciful**' [Ex. 5*:& 7; 
P</.S«l:r. : Jonah *:1; Hark 7:19).

"Man j- men are loo busy making
